Coconut Oil Whip

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 8 ounces virgin coconut oil, chilled (oil must be solid)
  • 15 drops essential oil, such as lavender, lemongrass or sweet orange (optional)

Coconut Oil Whip Directions

  1. Place the chilled coconut oil in a 4-cup container.
  2. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the oil for 5 to 7 minutes until light and very creamy in appearance.
  3. Add essential oil, if using, and whip for an additional minute to disperse evenly.
  4. Spoon into a container with a tight-fitting lid and store in a cool, dry place.
  5. An ambient temperature of 76° or above will result in the whip deflating and liquefying, which only affects the texture.
  6. (Note: Avoid getting water in the container. Use a spoon or cosmetic spatula to scoop out.)
